A scene of terror took place on a Saturday night, when a Taken outside the National Park in Washington DC caused gunfire inside the ballpark.
The game between the San Diego Padres and the Washington Nationals was halted in the sixth inning. Minimal information was available at the time, and after the players were taken off the pitch, fans began scrambling for safety, many of them running onto the pitch and into the football player.
Before the game resumed on Sunday morning, manager Padres Jayce Tingler spoke about the incident and paid tribute to his players after they helped bring panicked fans to safety.
“I couldn’t be more proud to be a Padre,” Tingler said, pausing to wipe away a tear. “Be with the men in there and they are obviously going out and thinking about their loved ones and they are having families, and that’s just human nature. They are seeing the fans and seeing people panic, they did the right thing.”
“They thought maybe the dugout might be the safest place,” Tingler added. “And they led, welcomed and guided everyone in there, I couldn’t be more proud.”
The Nationals initially posted a statement asking fans to stay inside the stadium while the situation outside the ballpark is monitored. The Nationals later released another statement saying, “Fans are encouraged to get off the field through the CF and RF portals at this time. We are working with law enforcement to make more information available as soon as it is available.”
Three people suffered non-life threatening injuries after gunfire between two vehicles outside the stadium. Two people in one of the cars were wounded by bullets. A fan was injured a third, after being grazed by a bullet while crossing a nearby street.
